Update 01.041 - Block control through Toolbar, Weapons control through Rotors
Players can now have proper control of their ships while sitting in the cockpit by adding (drag-and-drop) blocks to the toolbar. Activating such block can turn the blocks on/off, reverse rotation of rotors, increase/decrease velocity and many other actions already present in the control panel. We have also enabled the option to shoot from weapons which are attached on rotors and pistons; players can now build retractable weapons!

I am unsure how to feel about this latest patch. Is it possible that you can have a series of actions set to a very specific block so when you click your shortcut it runs through those actions? Right now it looks like it is one action to one shortcut, and probably, possibly, you will trigger every tool of the same type, maybe??

Wow those are some deep settings you can map on your toolbar, I orignially only expected just a "reverse" function.
Makes me look forward to the programming update.

Great work guys. Stuff like this makes this my favourite Early Access Game of always. :D
